Amazing Belize Images from Corozal to Placencia

Some people enjoy taking pictures of Belize, a few like my mom opt for postcards over snapping pics and others enjoy looking at other peoples images of Belize.

It’s always interesting to see how someone frames a shot and puts in their artistic touches when making it truly their own work of art.

The amazing pictures in today’s post are from Ric Hornsby, a disabled Nature and Fine Art Photographer from Canada, recently traveled throughout most of Belize. He is back in Canada now, working through a pile of images and will soon launch a website where his work will be available. In the interim, Ric wanted to share a few of his experiences through images of the many wonderful things he saw while traveling in Belize.

In the photographer’s own words:

“Opinionated, disabled, generally late for lunch, at peace with nature. Yeah, that’s me in a nutshell. Oh. I also carry a camera, and I travel. I have very limited use of my right hand due to being disabled. Being right-handed, this makes working through images a somewhat slower process. It requires detailed mousing abilities, and I can only do so much at a time. Stay tuned for a link to a larger collection of what this country means to an old curmudgeon with a camera!”

Here are 9 of the over 13,000 shots Ric captured during his travels. Including a few of a Great Egret that he met while walking the shore of Caye Caulker. Ric mentioned “If you spent time there this winter, you may have seen the same bird. It was hanging out around Popeye’s.

  1. My name is Joe Pinzone and I’m casting an international travel show about expats moving abroad. We’d love to film in the Caribbean/Central America and wanted to know if you could help us find expats who have moved there within the last 15 months or have been there for 3-4 years, but recently moved into a new home. The show documents their move to a new country and will place the country in fabulous light. The contributors on the show would also receive monetary compensation if they are filmed. If you’d like more information, please give me a call at 212-231-7716 or skype me at joefromnyc. You can also email me at [email protected]. Looking forward to hearing from you.

  2. Thanks, Wilma! I chased a number of hummers around the country. Perhaps, my favourite was a green-breasted mango that I ran into while stumping around the Cockscomb preserve! I still haven’t been able to do more than scratch the surface of what I shot over the winter. Look for richornsby.com to rise from the ashes, soon…

  3. Beautiful photos. That hummer is a rufous-tailed hummingbird. Great fun to watch those little guys!
